Abstract: From the Publisher: The indispensable guide to wireless communications—now fully revised and updated! Wireless Communications: Principles and Practice, Second Edition is the definitive modern text for wireless communications technology and system design. Building on his classic first edition, Theodore S. Rappaport covers the fundamental issues impacting all wireless networks and reviews virtually every important new wireless standard and technological development, offering especially comprehensive coverage of the 3G systems and wireless local area networks (WLANs) that will transform communications in the coming years. Rappaport illustrates each key concept with practical examples, thoroughly explained and solved step by step. Coverage includes: An overview of key wireless technologies: voice, data, cordless, paging, fixed and mobile broadband wireless systems, and beyond Wireless system design fundamentals: channel assignment, handoffs, trunking efficiency, interference, frequency reuse, capacity planning, large-scale fading, and more Path loss, small-scale fading, multipath, reflection, diffraction, scattering, shadowing, spatial-temporal channel modeling, and microcell/indoor propagation Modulation, equalization, diversity, channel coding, and speech coding New wireless LAN technologies: IEEE 802.11a/b, HIPERLAN, BRAN, and other alternatives New 3G air interface standards, including W-CDMA, cdma2000, GPRS, UMTS, and EDGE Bluetooth wearable computers, fixed wireless and Local Multipoint Distribution Service (LMDS), and other advanced technologies Updated glossary of abbreviations and acronyms, and a thorolist of references Dozens of new examples and end-of-chapter problems Whether you're a communications/network professional, manager, researcher, or student, Wireless Communications: Principles and Practice, Second Edition gives you an in-depth understanding of the state of the art in wireless technology—today's and tomorrow's.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present a comprehensive introduction to OFDM for wireless broadband multimedia communications and provide design guidelines to maximize the benefits of this important new technology, including modulation and coding, synchronization, and channel estimation.
Abstract: From the Book: The manifestations of the mode of goodness can be experienced when all the gates of the body are illuminated by knowledge The Bhagavad Gita (14.11) During the joint supervision of a Master's thesis "The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio of OFDM," of Arnout de Wild from Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, we realized that there was a shortage of technical information on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) in a single reference. Therefore, we decided to write a comprehensive introduction to OFDM. This is the first book to give a broad treatment to OFDM for mobile multimedia communications. Until now, no such book was available in the market. We have attempted to fill this gap in the literature. Currently, OFDM is of great interest by the researchers in the Universities and research laboratories all over the world. OFDM has already been accepted for the new wireless local area network standards from IEEE 802.11, High Performance Local Area Network type 2 (HIPERLAN/2) and Mobile Multimedia Access Communication (MMAC) Systems. Also, it is expected to be used for the wireless broadband multimedia communications. OFDM for Wireless Multimedia Communications is the first book to take a comprehensive look at OFDM, providing the design guidelines one needs to maximize benefits from this important new technology. The book gives engineers a solid base for assessing the performance of wireless OFDM systems. It describes the new OFDM-based wireless LAN standards; examines the basics of direct-sequence and frequency-hopping CDMA, helpful in understanding combinations of OFDM and CDMA. It also looks at applications of OFDM, includingdigital audio and video broadcasting, and wireless ATM. Loaded with essential figures and equations, it is a must-have for practicing communications engineers, researchers, academics, and students of communications technology. Chapter 1 presents a general introduction to wireless broadband multimedia communication systems (WBMCS), multipath propagation, and the history of OFDM. A part of this chapter is based on the contributions of Luis Correia from the Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal, Anand Raghawa Prasad from Lucent Technologies, and Hiroshi Harada from the Communications Research Laboratory, Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications, Yokosuka, Japan. Chapters 2 to 5 deal with the basic knowledge of OFDM including modulation and coding, synchronization, and channel estimation, that every post-graduate student as well as practicing engineers must learn. Chapter 2 contains contributions of Rob Kopmeiners from Lucent Technologies on the FFT design. Chapter 6 describes the peak-to-average power problem, as well as several solutions to it. It is partly based on the contribution of Arnout de Wild. Basic principles of CDMA are discussed in Chapter 7 to understand multi carrier CDMA and frequency-hopping OFDMA, which are described in Chapters 8 and 9. Chapter 8 is based on the research contributions from Shinsuke Hara from the University of Osaka, Japan, a postdoctoral student at Delft University of Technology during 1995-96, Chapter 9 is based on a UMTS proposal, with main contributions of Ralf Bohnke from Sony, Germany, David Bhatoolaul and Magnus Sandell from Lucent Technologies, Matthias Wahlquist from Telia Research, Sweden, and Jan-Jaap van de Beek from Lulea University, Sweden. Chapter 10 was written from the viewpoint of top technocrats from industries, government departments, and policy-making bodies. It describes several applications of OFDM, with the main focus on wireless ATM in the Magic WAND project, and the new wireless LAN standards for the 5 GHz band from IEEE 802.11, HIPERLAN/2 and MMAC. It is partly based on contributions from Geert Awater from Lucent Technologies, and Masahiro Morikura and Hitoshi Takanashi from NTT in Japan and California, respectively. We have tried our best to make each chapter quite complete in itself This book will help generate many new research problems and solutions for future mobile multimedia communications. We cannot claim that this book is errorless. Any remarks to improve the text and correct any errors would be highly appreciated.
